3 Ways to Get Exercise in Your Pool


If you want to live a long, healthy life, you need to exercise. The problem is most forms of exercise are dull, boring, and monotonous. Luckily for you, pools are one of the best places to get your daily exercise and have a blast at the same time. Want to know how? Here are 3 easy ways to get exercise in your pool.

  1. Swimming laps is some of the best exercise you can get. Not only does swimming use almost every muscle in your body (toning and shaping your body in the process), but it's fun as well. If you have a long pool, consider swimming the length of the pool as fast as you can (and timing it with a watch). Have a smaller pool? If so, swim a block of laps (5 or more) and time yourself that way. Adding a goal can make the workout more fun than you might think.
  2. Water aerobics are great for sculpting muscles and increasing your cardiovascular fitness. Aerobics can include everything from water yoga to specific toning exercises. Whether you are young or old, there are specific aerobic exercises you are sure to enjoy.
  3. Water games are another great way to get plenty of exercise without getting bored. From volleyball to polo, adding a net, a ball, or some rings to your pool is all you need for a fun way to get fit.
